Not dependable

Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: 101 Amazing Facts (Kindle Edition)

Over the years so many books of "facts" have proved to contain information that is incomplete, anecdotal, or actually spurious, that I spot check the entries. One of the entries in this book claims that if you were told that Christians were fed to lions in the Colosseum, you were lied to. Lied to is strong language. The author also claims that the Colosseum was built after the earliest Christian p

This is a compilation of trivia and facts. Some of them are quite remarkable. With the world as its source the subjects are quite diverse. The book has ten subheadings: Animals, War, Capitol Cities, Ancient Civilizations, TV and Film. Royalty, Mysteries, Music and Everything Else. This is the perfect companion for the toilet. No, I’m not suggesting you throw it away but it is perfect for those restful moments you must spend while answering nature’s call.

A quick read. All the facts given in the book are not satisfactory and convincing. Some rumours are also in this book.

This was great for a quick read. Some of the facts were really random and I hadn't read them before. The only thing that stopped me from giving a 4 star review was the ad's...far too many! However, if you have a spare 10 minutes it's worth a read.

Certainly a quick and easy read. It was hard to ignore the grammatical and spelling errors though, and a bit strange to find several of them throughout the book.

This book was pretty interesting. The facts are quite different from each other. I didn't know most of them. But most of them are simply very interesting.

I Want My Time Back

This book is not just boring, it is boring and stupid. I could better have spent my time soaking my feet in a foot bath, followed by a pedicure and at the end, painting my toenails a color called " Missy Tombstone Green. " Don't make the mistake I did, of thinking a little trivia might be fun. It is not!
Just finished reading “AMAZING FACTS” by D. L. NAGLE. A fascinating array of facts and figures about people, places and events. 19 illustrated pages....trivia.

**This is a review for the audiobook version on Audible**

A Book for Everyone!

The audiobook 101 Amazing Facts by Jack Goldstein, Narrated by J. Scott Bennett is great for people who love trivia and random facts! I'm a teacher, and I hold trivia challenges for my high school students each week, so I was super excited when I saw this fun listen! The book is organized well. It is broken up into themes (see below) and each theme includes 10 facts. As each fact is presented, the narrator reads the fac

Not that amazing. I knew most of these facts. Needs an edit, lots of typos, and I think there were more ads than content. Oh well, it was free on Amazon when I got it...

Poorly written

Very short and littered with spelling and grammar mistakes. Not all facts are very interesting or well explained enough to be satisfying.

If you want to read an on the edge of your seat with your heart in your throat, can't put it down type story then this third book in the series is for you, it's the best one yet. It is exciting, full of action, battles, danger, sorrow, love and beauty. I'm not going to rehash the story because you can read that in the blurb and it would be hard not to give anything away because there is a lot that happens and some really great twists. The characters lodge in your heart and the author makes you f ...more

Quick read. Too many advertisements for other books. Some of the facts were questionable, but none did I know to be untrue.

Organized by subject matter, there were obscure facts and interesting items, but I would have appreciated more information than just a short paragraph on each. Nonetheless, interesting reading and a good diversion.

This book is part of a series titled “101 Amazing Facts About...” of which I have read several. They are all relatively short and quick reads but packed with interesting facts. This one titled “101 Amazing Facts” touches on a great variety of topics and may be the first, or one of the first, in the series. If only I could remember half of the facts I just read!

Some very interesting facts.

Book is devided in various topics and lot of unknown facts about each of these topics. Though facts are not that detailed if you want to know more about them you need to dig around on Wikipedia. It's a fun casual read. After reading this book you will rarely run out of topics and facts while engaging in Smalltalk.

Very informative read! Love how there were different sections on topics instead of just one topic throughout the book. This is a must read for any fact lover.

Good but too short

It's a good book containing many good facts but it's too small! So small that I finished it in half an hour! Hence the one deducted start otherwise it's a good book

Quirky tidbits.

Quick fun read. I enjoyed breezing through the resourcefulness in this book. I was surprised that I knew so few of the facts.
